Web API to get document by document ID

Hi,

I need to create a web api which would take document ID as input and should give the document.  I tried using document download function in the web api and the response I am getting is as follows:

[@attributes=[@anyAttribute=[_documentDownloadLink:ioBHxsE-N_JZt_4edZOQWnRVKO7BA2EyyDE3f8W5ryXvpMCFErFIBm5KMo], @nil=], document=[Document:117890], label=loan, actions=, version=-1]

How can I get the document from here?  

I also created the web api to download the document where the response is the url like "">mysite.com/.../56831"

But I do not want to get the link to download the document.  

Is there any other way to get the document through web api?  

Thanks in advance,

Brinda Sateesh.

  • Hi Stefan, I have a requirement wherein we have two environments  - one on cloud and one on premise and documents are stored in cloud environment. I've stored the document ids in the database. The on-premise users have to download certain files from cloud environment.  What is the best way to implement this?  I've tried using  the document link as web api and downloading it using safe url. but authentication cannot be done in this way. Please suggest some work around
